How to get sex stains out of a mattress, carpet, the car, clothing and more

(Picture: Getty)

Sex doesn’t always go to plan. And, much as most of us don’t like to think about it, sometimes it can get messy.

If you’re not getting frisky in bed, and decide to go at it on the floor, or in the car, there’s more risk that certain…stains end up getting left behind.

Advice from the dating wreckage: How do I deal with a partner who’s sh*t in bed?

When faced with such a dilemma, it can be too embarrassing to ask for advice – it’s not exactly something you’d tweet about (unless you have no such filter and similarly-minded followers, in which… Read the full story

Why are my hands and feet always cold?

(Picture: Getty)

Many people will regularly have cold hands and feet, with these feelings resulting in arguments over whether or not the thermostat should get cranked up.

There are many reasons why people feel chilly in these areas, and most of the time, it’s nothing to worry about.

Why wearing socks in bed is good for you – and ‘can even make sex better’

As warm-blooded beings, humans self regulate their body temperature. So if you’re exposed to colder temperatures, the body will constrict its small blood vessels, which keep the core warm and leave the extremities cooler.

Many of these small vessels are found… Read the full story

Why Fort Lauderdale in Florida should be your next beach break

Keep things simple with a holiday here (Picture: Getty)

Sometimes you need a basic bitch of a break – sun, sea and shopping.

Enter Fort Lauderdale, which is every bit as simple, expected and satisfying as a Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte.

It’s in Florida, perhaps overshadowed by its glitzier cousin Miami, and boasts fine beaches, a quieter scene than the aforementioned party city, and brands galore.

It’s also been nicknamed The Venice Of America thanks to its network of canals but, if you’ve been to Venice, prepare to be confused as there’s no real similarity at all.

You could easily come for the beaches, bars and buys alone.

Here’s why Fort Lauderdale should be your next beach… Read the full story

But sadly it’s not all delicious battered fish and fluffy Yorkshire puddings, because we’re also guilty of enjoying some foods that are quite frankly absolutely revolting.

Prepare yourself for a Finding Nemo tale of epic proportions.

Thousands of captive salmon have recently escaped their fish farm in a bid for freedom – and actually succeeded.

Please enjoy this delightful dudeoir calendar

Breaking out of captivity, the massive shoal has managed to actually get back into the ocean.

According to Canadian company Cooke Aquaculture, a strong tide resulting from the solar eclipse cause a net to break at the fish farm, allowing the fish to return to the ocean.

Up to 5,000 salmon broke free of their shackles, swapping a future of being made into gravlax for one of surfing the ocean waves.

But…there are complications.

Randomly, Karl Lagerfeld is designing a collection of Vans

Generally, Vans are shoes for kicking around in.

They’re the sort of shoe that looks better the more battered and distressed they become.

What they’re not generally associated with, however, is luxury.

People can get burned at any time, in any place – whether there is an accidental fire, you accidentally pour boiling water on yourself or get burned by an electrical supply.

Many of us know to run a burnt finger under a cold tap, and we’ve heard the ‘stop, drop and roll’ drill that got drummed into us at school, but what do we do after that?

For luck? Or for sex? (Picture: Liberty Antonia Sadler for Metro.co.uk)

As a writer who specialises in sex and relationships, I am often asked about the strangest place I have ever had sex.

I rarely answer, not because I am bashful but because the intrigue is so much more interesting than the truth (which is Richmond Park).

Sex around the world: A museum of heartache in Croatia

Instead, I refer anyone curious about unusual sex locations to the Pon Festival of Indonesia.

During this centuries-old ritual, couples meet to have sexual intercourse next to a shrine, on the side of a mountain.

What to do if a proposal goes wrong

It’s hard to know who has a more nerve-wracking time during a proposal.

One hand, the proposer has put their heart on the line and might get shot down at any moment. Then, on the other hand the proposee now has the responsibility of their partner’s feelings to contend with, which is made even worse if it’s a public place.

Flying can be a nervy and slightly unpleasant experience even for the most experienced of travellers.

And one of the worst things about plane travel is undoubtedly the crap food that often gets served up.

Why is dating so draining?

I talk about dating a lot, and that’s probably because I date quite a lot.

Most single people I know are the same, with some averaging a couple of first dates a week, and some even more.

It’s likely got something to do with living in a city, where there are thousands of people free at the drop of a hat, to grab a drink with and decide if you connect.

There’s just one small problem. It’s. So. Draining.

What makes my urine smell? 12 foods that can give it an odour

(Picture: Getty)

We’ve all felt curious about whether our urine is normal – and felt panicky if it ever changes.

There are many reasons why it can suddenly start smelling different, and for the most part, there isn’t any reason to start panicking.

METRO GRAPHICSHow often should you actually be pooing?

Although urine shouldn’t have a particular odour, it can smell stronger in the morning, or when you’re dehydrated.

But there are certain foods that can temporarily give urine a stronger smell – here are the most likely culprits.

Street art, kayaks and a town called Celebration — the Florida you’ve probably never heard of


Think Florida and you think Mickey Mouse, theme park rides and, maybe, Route 95. It’s all about Disney World and Miami, right?


Forget Barbados – Antigua should be your next Caribbean holiday destination

While the world’s most famous theme park and the sunshine state’s most southern city grab all the attention from visitors, there’s a lot in between that often goes unseen.

Kayaking with alligators and dolphin spotting are just a couple of things you could do instead.

So if you want a taste of Florida you’ve never tried before, here are a few ideas:

Mwah haha (Picture: Betsie Van der Meer/Getty)

It is always better to take the moral high ground when someone has wronged you.

We all know you should be the mature one, hold your head high and walk away.

But sometimes that is just too difficult.

Particularly if it is a meddling sibling, stirring colleague or crappy ex.

While you should never do anything illegal, sometimes it feels good to give karma a helping hand.
